The Great Gallery in Horseshoe Canyon, Utah

Horseshoe Canyon is located in a small, detached section of Canyonlands National Park. This somewhat remote canyon is home to some fine and well preserved examples of Native American rock art. The Great Gallery is a mystery for many. The armless and often eyeless figures are an enigma in themselves, and there seems to be great debate as to their age. As to the when these where made, new estimates place it between the time of Christ, or 0 A.D., up to about 1100 A.D. These estimates were made by measuring the luminescence of quartz crystals taken from the site.
